Nawaz hints at collation govt in victory speech
Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz supremo Nawaz Sharif has hinted at forming a collation government despite claiming that his party emerged as single largest party in the recently concluded election 2024.
“PML-N respect the mandate of all parties including the independent candidates,” he said in his opening remarks to a jubilant crowed gathered at Model Town Lahore to celebrate PML-N victory.
However, despite over 27 hours, country is still waiting for the elections results.
Nawaz said that PML-N will be reaching out to Pakistan People Party (PPP), Muttahida Qaumi Movement- Pakistan (MQM-P), and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazal (JULI-F) for coalition government.
“I’ve given responsibility to Shehbaz to reach out to the PPP’s Asif Ali Zardari, JUI-F’s Fazlur Rehman and MQM-P’s Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui for the formation of a coalition government,” he said.
“Shehbaz Sharif and Ishaq Dar will hold meetings today,” he said.
“We are inviting everyone today to rebuild this injured Pakistan and sit with us,” he said. “Our agenda is only a happy Pakistan and you know what we have done before.”
He stressed on bringing all political allies together to take Pakistan out from this crisis.
“We can’t hold elections again and again,” he said. “We were all sitting together yesterday but didn’t address you because the results were not in.”
“All the institutions in this country, everyone should together play a positive role in bringing Pakistan out of this crisis,” Nawaz said, adding that the same was not just his or Ishaq Dar’s responsibility.
“This is everyone’s Pakistan, not just PML-N’s. Everyone should sit in harmony and bring Pakistan out of the difficulties.”
Nawaz Sharif has said the PML-N did not want to fight because Pakistan could not afford it.
